Wedding dinner at Batu Gajah

2 weeks ago, the BDS gang went all the way South to Batu Gajah, Perak (somewhere bout one and a half hour from Taiping) twice in conjuction with Karen's wedding.

Here's yours truly with the pretty bride Karen. The red face was because of the gown, not that we were drunk, haha!

Hubby and I with the newly wed, Karen and Steven. We went on Saturday noon for her wedding reception. Aden was home with my MIL.

 Individual shots with the bride.

3 mummies and 1 mum-to-be *wink*

 The gentlemen and the newly wed

Wedding dinner was held at a multi-purpose hall in that kampung, which is kampung Chenderong. It is without air-cond but luckily it was raining earlier that day so the weather was abit cooling. Otherwise, I can't imagine how uncomfortable it is...

 The hall is quite small and packed, we waited til the 6th dish and left the place about 8pm as the bridegroom still needed to go back to his house at Taiping to attend to his relatives and friends.

The dinner started quite punctually compared to Taiping and other big cities.

First dish was the usual hot & cold combination, 七彩拼盘. Ok, quite satisfied ;)

Then the sharkfin soup (蟹王鱼翅), also satisfactory.

Roasted duck and chicken (鸳鸯琵琶). Not bad too~

Assorted greens with mushroom (好事年年), my favourite cause I like vege and all types of mushrooms.

Deep fried big head prawns (干煎生虾), the prawns are quite fresh~

Deep fried garoupa with Thai sauce (巴辣石斑), the meat is also quite fresh.

Food were served by:
Restaurant Wing Kee
177, Jln Kg Timah,
31800 Tanjung Tualang,

3 more dishes to go but we were ready to travel back Taiping already, as we needed to wake up at 6am the next morning and travel here again for the tea ceremony @.@

Lastly, a toast from the couples and family to the guests who attend

Next, the morning tea ceremony and bridegroom's wedding reception at Taiping.

  2. awww you all look so pretty and the food wow... congratulations to both of them :)

  3. nice bride. the shark fin , so thick. I thought people stop eating shark fin already?

  4. The food looks kind of old school - like what we used to get in our younger days. Oooo...I missed that! So nice!!!! Hmmm...maybe if I go to the smaller towns here, I may get a full-course dinner like this one too.

  5. Congrats to the newly-wed~

    You need to attend to both bride and groom events? Fuh, must be tiring! Nevertheless, it's so good to have gathering with friends.
